Default Salt Skin


Lonely ideas, they sink
Into mind, into meó
Till itís late; walk thru the gatesó
Today is gonna be the day;ó
Awash in dirt, a long dayís toil;
Nor Cancer in my bones,ó
No venom in my heartís false start.
They tied me up but Iím still dreamingó
And then the lies, the abrasive lines,
Off my rope, at my witís endó
I need a hand to hold; shelter in the night
My body sleeps alone again,
Merlot and ambien; Iím fighting wars again;
But Iím in the same boat as anyone else
The clouds fill the dark skies in:
This is how I built my home.

This makes me want to lick your shoulders.
In a good way.
